May 27, 2008 (08:05 AM EDT)

DALLAS, May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Covetrix Security Awareness training was just released in response to the top regulatory priority guidelines this year; the new IT Examiner Questionnaire and Identity Theft Red Flag Rules. Both mandate new levels of documentation, training and awareness throughout institutions. The FDIC's purpose behind these new guidances is for insured depository institutions to have security programs that ensure the confidentiality of customer information, anticipate and protect against security threats and unauthorized access or use of customer information, and ensure proper disposal of customer information.

Covetrix addresses the institutions' need to prepare their identity theft program documentation, as well as the training and awareness of employees and customers through its new approach to security awareness training. The fully customizable program allows you to upload your own content, implement Covetrix training videos, send emails, or publish Covetrix Comic Newsletters. Design your training courses to ensure your employees can identify, detect, and respond to identity theft attempts or have Covetrix staff create a custom course. Everything is handled online for easier administration and distribution to your employees and customers and easily accessible reports can be readily available to provide to your examiner. Not only will there be a better understanding and awareness of potential threats; you will also complete the new IT Questionnaire for Examiners and identity theft program requirements!
